Cold shower? The routine of the most productive people when they wake up! (Author: Daniel Colombo)
Perhaps for those who are used to saying to themselves when they wake up “five more minutes” when the alarm goes off under the fluffy duvet and the warmth of the bed, this idea seems far-fetched. However, it is not something new and many of the most productive executives in the world apply it: get up immediately, without hesitation, very early, and take a cold shower.
This is a practice known since ancient times: Hippocrates, the Greek doctor born in 460 BC, considered the greatest of all time, recommended it to his patients as a remedy for many diseases. At this time, Cristiano Ronaldo was one of the first athletes to refer to his practice of taking cold showers for muscle recovery; And also the singer and actress Lady Gaga was shown in photos in a variant of the cold shower: she takes ice baths.

Daily Message from Acceler8Success Founder, Paul Segreto
“It’s not unusual to see your stress and anxiety levels rise during stressful, challenging times. When you feel these levels rise – slow down, breathe slowly, breathe deeply. Separate yourself from the moment – get up from your desk, take a walk, listen to music, go sit in a different chair and close your eyes or just stand outside and distract yourself with sights and sounds of nature. Feel the warmth of the sun on your face. Allow your mind to drift to your happy place. Smile. Do this for 20-30 minutes and you’ll find yourself relaxed and with a sharper mind. You’ll also find the ability to circumvent the thing or situation that interrupted your focus in the first place. Have a great day. Make it happen. Make it count!”

The Crisis According to Albert Einstein
“Let’s not pretend that things will change if we keep doing the same things. A crisis can be a real blessing to any person, to any nation. For all crises bring progress…
Creativity is born from anguish, just like the day is born form the dark night. It’s in crisis that inventive is born, as well as discoveries, and big strategies. Who overcomes crisis, overcomes himself, without getting overcome. Who blames his failure to a crisis neglects his own talent, and is more respectful to problems than to solutions. Incompetence is the true crisis…
The greatest inconvenience of people and nations is the laziness with which they attempt to find the solutions to their problems. There’s no challenge without a crisis. Without challenges, life becomes a routine, a slow agony. There’s no merit without crisis. It’s in the crisis where we can show the very best in us. Without a crisis, any wind becomes a tender touch. To speak about a crisis is to promote it. Not to speak about it is to exalt conformism. Let us work hard instead…
Let us stop, once and for all, the menacing crisis that represents the tragedy of not being willing to overcome it.”

3 Tips From Founders for Preserving Your Mental Health (Author: Joely Simon)
After only six weeks of working in his company’s newly purchased office space, Isaac Rudansky, founder and CEO of AdVenture Media Group, sent his employees home to avoid the spread of Covid-19. He lost 35 percent of his clients in the first three weeks of the pandemic.”I’m actually an optimistic person, but this was a really dark period,” he says. “Oftentimes, when you’re dealing with feelings of depression and stress, it’s impossible to look at a longer horizon.”
So rather than look forward, Rudansky looked back at the past five years. Even through the peaks and valleys, he saw that his life and career had trended in a positive direction. That perspective gave him the confidence to move forward. Read more at Inc.com.
